Just poppin’ up to say hello

Hello my froggy friends!

This sweet image from Digi Doodle Studios is part of the Pond Life Pairables Digi Stamp Set.  The paper is from the digital set called On the Pond.

I absolutely love this adorable digi stamp set!  I had the image of a little boy stuffing frogs in his pockets and thought this card design would be perfect.

I printed these adorable little frogs on X-Press It Blending Card and colored them with the following Copic Markers.

~Copics~
Frog:  YG97, YG95, YG93, YG91, YG03, YG01, YG00, YG0000, E84
Eyes:  BV20, BG70, B000, Colorless Blender

just poppin up to say hello2

I started with an idea I found on Pinterest, but couldn’t find an SVG file that was quite what I was looking for.  I have the mindset…if there is a will, there is a way.  So…I opened up my Silhouette software and got to work creating.  I however, wasn’t prepared for the hours involved since this is the first file I created…lol

The card base is A2 size – top folding.

just poppin up to say hello1

I love, love, love the digi paper, but it was a little too dark for the frogs to stand out.  To make the paper lighter I brought it into Photoshop and changed the opacity to 60%.  This leaves all the colors the same, but just lightens it up.

3D Trinket Box ~ La-La Land Crafts

Good morning!

It’s Inspiration Friday at La-La Land Crafts with a theme of ‘3D’.

I have never made a circle box before, so before I could start I needed to do a little research on how to do it.  Once I decided on which style I had supplies for, I dove in.  I was nervous to be honest…lol!

I think settling on an image sometimes is the hardest part for me…in the end this adorable little garden fairy from the Love to Garden Clear Stamp Set won!  I have always been drawn to the sweetness of this set.

3D box

I started my project by stamping this little cutie on X-Press It Blending Card and colored her with the following Copic Markers.

~Copics~
Skin:  E13, E11, E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20, R30, R00
Hair:  E55, E31, YR21, E30, E50
Dress:  RV11, RV21, R000, R0000, BG72, White Gel Pen
Wings:  BG11, BG10, R0000
Shoes:  BG72, BG70, BG0000

3D box1

I used the Pointy Flowers Die and Foamiran Foam to create the curled flowers that have stamen centers.  I ran the dies through my die cutting machine using the foam instead of paper, colored them with Distress Oxide inks and then heated them with an iron (with the inside of flower facing the iron) for a few seconds until they started to curl.

La-La Land Crafts Products used on my card:
Love to Garden Clear Stamp Set
Spring Has Sprung Paper Pad
Pointy Flowers Die
Spring Blossoms Small Die
Rolled Rose Large Die
Rolled Rose Small & Medium Die
Shabby Flourishes Die
Long Flags Die
Small Scallops Border Die
Stitched Nested Circles Die
Pierced Scalloped Circles Die
Flower Elements Border Die
